BabbleFish

Looking for translation software? You're in the wrong place. But. If you think you might be interested in the musings of a cranky forty-something learning to follow her dreams, live without fear, love herself, and look good doing it, well then, hell, come on down!

Why BabbleFish?

BabbleFish is a blend of babble, one of my normal speech settings, and the Babel Fish.

According to Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
"The Babel fish is a fictional species of fish in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams. A Babel fish is a highly improbable biological universal translator. It appears as a 'small, yellow and leechlike' fish. When a Babel fish is inserted into the ear canal it allows the wearer to 'instantly understand anything said... in any form of language.' "
And according to Dictionary.com, to translate is:

"To be changed or transformed in effect."

Which is what I'm hoping for: transformation, deeper understanding and acceptance of self. But I yam what I yam, and there will also be a fair amount of babbling (see: all previous posts).

And besides, BabbleFish is just more fun to say.
